it and the obama campaign should expect this as well because that's what happens this time of year. in 2007 we were going six months at this stage, or six months into the campaign four years ago at this stage. we were focused on iowa. we believed we had to win iowa to have a shot at the nomination. if we lost, we would have some problems. there was a much more narrow path to the nomination. so everyone was really focused on the four early states, which included new hampshire, south carolina, new hampshire as well. things were really starting to happen in september. starting to see things come together after many months. tuneups for thel collaps race that's 12 weeks away. a car you have on labor day is the car you'll drive through the primary. so you are getting people into positions. it was late september when this poll dropped. it was the same one we had been seeing a couple months, but it showed hillary clinton ahead by 47% to 23% at. it was a cnn poll and she was winning by at least 20 points or maybe 25 points. apple dropped into headquarters like a grenade. there was something that happened in
under george bush. we continue to add during the obama years, but had to deal with the iraq and afghanistan wars and the bush tax cuts that were never paid for. the support president obama as our commander in chief? do you believe he is a united states citizen? do you accept the fact that he calls himself a christian? >> that was three questions. i will say, of course barack obama is our commander in chief. i wish he were a stronger commander in chief. >> to you believe in the? >> let him finish, please. you posed the question. >> i wish he were a stronger commander in chief. in recent weeks, we saw the tragedy of the assassination of -- >> let him finish. >> ok. >> they are simple questions. >> i understand you would like to put me on the cross examination stage. if you would like a -- >> i'll give you about 20 seconds, then we will move on. >> i wish she were a stronger commander in chief. in the last few weeks, we saw our ambassador to libya assassinated in an organized action by al qaeda on september 11. his response was to affectively apologize and blame it on an obscur

to run against president bush, he should have ran four years ago. >> four years ago, barack obama and john mccain faced off in a first debate that was nearly canceled when the republican suspended his campaign because of the meltdown on wall street. the day of their second debate, the stock market dropped 500 points. >> now the troubles are spreading. the market took another dive today, and there are some big names now involved. >> reporter: the day of the third debate, the stock market dropped over 300 points. >> fear that the country could be entering in one of the most serious recessions in decades, led by wall street's 700-point sell-off. >> now four years later, the president who faced john mccain in those debates and beat him faces his new republican challenger for the first time. >> i'm looking forward to head to head. >> an mirror image of '08, a campaign is chaotic mash. new issues, new controversies, every day. the polls are bad for romney and good for obama in the swing states. but the national numbers are as tight as they get. the primaries are over, the conventions ar
. obama he did too. a year after it passed a percentage of americans who believe the stimulus created jobs was lower than the percentage of americans who believe elvis was alive. at one point i told the story how obama told his cabinet that the stimulus was the only thing less popular than he was. when you put the words change and obama this close together you are going to get yelled at. the new -- "the new new deal," right wingers the text of the old new deal and left wingers don't think this spineless sellout of a president is fit to share a book jacket with the new deal. i had a feeling some readers wouldn't get past the first four words. and i was right. a few weeks ago i got a google alert that "the new new deal" was in the new republic. i had written a lot for that magazine. i have a lot of friends there. i clicked on the link and it is the blog coast by a 23-year-old researcher who announced right away he couldn't even make it to the first page. she couldn't get past the first four words. but not these four first words. i will read what he wrote. it was so disturbing, so washington
not hear it. >> in response to the romney video, an obama video surfaced from 14 years ago in which he discusses market forces and competition, but also the redistribution of wealth. let's take a look. >> it is figuring out how we structure government systems that pool resources and facilitate some redistribution, because i actually believe in redistribution, at least a certain level to make sure everybody has got a shot. >> mr. sadler, do you agree with this notion of redistributing wealth from one side of americans to another site? >> i do not agree with that at all. i do not know the context, the full context of what he is saying, but that was 15 years ago. >> 14. >> 14 years ago. i do not follow that philosophy. i do not see any evidence, in spite of mr. cruz's claims, of him manipulating the public, as he suggests. >> mr. cruz, please respond -- do you believe he is saying he does not believe in redistribution? >> of course president obama believes in wealth distribution. been clear is that he supports president obama. this president has engaged in reckless fiscal policies. we hav
years of obama or 8 years of romney. you can do four years fast. eight years is a long time. >> this is the first time they have seen them side by side and they are learning a lot here. i think romney exposed a lot of obama's weaknesses. and deficiencies. so i would give the slight edge to romney. martha: wisdom come be from those gentlemen. some in the crowd did not care what either candidate had to say. one man said he already made up his mind and he voted early. that changes the die ma'am nick a lot of these cases as well. coming up, is it a new day for mitt romney? that is the big question. he did well last night but will it change the game at all? is the president not you one who needs to play catchup? most people think he will. we'll get some reaction from both campaigns how their respective candidates performed last night. that coming up a couple minutes away. bill: remember fox news? where else would you be. the next big debate is one week from today. joe biden and paul ryan scare off in danville, kentucky. we'll have complete coverage of that as we move toward next
and see what we can find. this is what the country looked like in 2009. barack obama's first full year in office. every state that looks brown out here is a state where they were losing jobs at the time. some of them very bad. look at ohio over here. 10.6% unemployment. gradually over the next few years jobs come in education and health care and business services and retail. every state that is lighter in color where they are no longer losing jobs or, in some cases, gaining jobs. ohio, 7.2% unemployment now. that is better than the national average. the bureau of labor statistics says to make that happen, we, indeed, had to create a lot of jobs. how many? by their count? 4.4 million so far. but here is what is not mentioned much. 4.3 million were lost during the bad days. so the net gain is only about 125,000 and that falls short of the president's claim that he created 5 million jobs. it's just a little bit too much of a stretch. we have to call that claim false. even though many democrats will say in a heartbeat, look. he inherited a bad economy from george bush. many voters agree wi
, i heard, on that debate stage, was the barack obama i have been listening to now for four years. he sounded very much like himself. i don't think he was terribly bad. i think he has a very weak case and i think the circumstances in the country present the challenging candidate with all kinds of opportunities. mitt romney was on his game and took advantage of those opportunities. the president is saddled with weak circumstances and therefore a weak case and it's not surprising to me that he didn't argue it very well and the other thing is, despite the -- his reputation as being a world cass orator, and maybe he is with' set speech but there is not a lot of evidence he was a great debater and put them together an i don't think it is as big a shock as the president's supporters on the left feel. i think they thought he was ten feet tall and he's not ten feet tall and never has been. >> chris: mara, about the specific issue of -- doing fact checking of romney and continue to press. i don't think it is accurate, the $5 trillion tax cut, they talk about, well in fact the place will cut pe
, in five years. so, they are lower now than when president obama took office. so it is all about middle class security and security in your home, secy in your jobs and we are making progress. >> chris: but governor, at 7.8%, what it is as of friday, no president has been reelected with unemployment this high since fdr back in 1940. no president has been elected with growth this low. it is now 1.3%, for the second quarter. with growth this low, since they started measuring gdp growth in 1930. by historical standards, this is still a very weak recovery. >> without a doubt. we still have a long way to go and speaking of fdr, no president since him was left bigger job losses, bigger unemployment and bigger deficits and more wars than president obama, was, by the failed policies of george w. bush. which resulted in directly, the greatest job losses since fdr. this is not easy and it is hard work but we are moving forward. >> let's talk about policies. we didn't hear in the hour and 25 minutes of debate anything about the stimulus package. if you look at the policy the trickle-down government
in america. i want to create 1 million new manufacturing jobs in the next four years. >> obama care is point number one. it is the example number one where he wants to put bureaucrats between you and your doctor, he believes that the government should tell you what kind of insurance you have to have. he believes that government should have a board of people that tell you what kind of care you can receive. my view is we fight for freedom in this country, i do not want an intrusive massive larger debt spending government that crushes the american dream. >> they like to call it obama care, well, let me tell you, i do care. i care about all the young people who are able to stay on their parents' plans now. i care about the seniors who are seeing lower prescription drug costs. i care about folks with pre-existing conditions who can't be denied care now. governor romney has promised that he would overturn obama care on its first day in office. which means -- which means he would kick nearly 7 million young people off their parents' plans. he would make seniors prescription drugs more expensive, yo
problems in four year stretches. i think barack obama can proudly say look at what we accomplished these are the issues. we are on the cusp of making real progress in the next term. >> you talked about the big problem that we had a few years ago in the banking industry. i want to take you back to your previous life as attorney general of the new york. you know the story with torn general snyderman with j.p. morgan. what do you think about that case? >> eric deserves credit for bringing the case. he made the overarching argument that there was structural fraud going on at bear stearns then acquired we morgan chase. the case is a rehashing of allegations from other cases over time. my food is ok, so be it, but he has pulled it together into a more coherentar particular let format. made the case the federal government should have made many years back, the federal government was queasy, unwilling to do it. eric deserves credit for the fortitude of trying to say to the public we will hold them accountable individually and institutionally for the wrong that did enormous harm to our socie
next year. >>> could there be trouble in par are dice for president obama and his one-time buddy, ben affleck. he had high hopes for president obama in 2008. but now affleck admits his feeling for the president are complicated. the actor blamed the president's record for his change of heart. >> brian: he wants him to be more liberal. so does matt damon. that's why he's disappointed. there you go. 12 minutes after the hour. next up, a u.s. border patrol agent shot and killed in the line of duty. so is the federal government failing to give our agents proper protection? we'll report. you decide. >> steve: and did you know having the government in your home for dinner? why are they telling you what to eat in your own house? the food police make a stop at your place. details ahead [ man ] ring ring... progresso this reduced sodium soup says it mahelp lower cholesterol, how does it work? you just he to eat it as part of your heart healthy diet. step 1. eat the soup. all those veggies and beans, that's what may help lower your cholesterol and -- well that's easy [ male announcer ] progresso
for two years fighting for obama care. >> reporter: the president made his points in a slower, laid back manner, often appearing disengaged. it's not that he didn't try to rip apart romney's economic plan. >> that kind of top down economics where folks at the top are doing well so the average person making $3 million is getting a $250,000 tax break while middle class families are burdened further -- >> reporter: romney was determined to go toe to toe. >> virtually everything he said about my tax plan sin accurate. if the tax plan he described were a tax plan i was asked to support, i'd say absolutely not. >> reporter: the president did get digs in. >> for 18 months he's been running on this tax plan. and now, five weeks before the election, he's saying that his big bold idea is never mind. >> reporter: but he also showed flashes of the kind of testiness sources in both camps feared from the candidates, except obama's was directed at the moderator, not romney. >> the last point i'd make before -- >> your two minutes is up. >> i think i had five seconds before you interrupted me, was -- >>
that somehow the people down in new orleans don't care about as much. >> president obama, that was five years ago. you decide whether this shows a side of barack obama never been seen before as the daily collar suggests or if it's nothing new. some say the president is speaking in a different kind of voice than he does in other speeches. you can also decide the same thing about this, about the coop tent of the next video, "the huffington post" first linked this video to it earlier. paul ryan speaking at a 2011 dinner hosted by "the american spectator." some of the left members say this is like mitt romney's video on the 47%. >> the good news is survey after survey, poll after poll, still shows that we are a center-right 70-30 country. 70% of americans want the american dream. they believe the american idea. only 30% want the welfare state. what that tells us is that at least half those people currently in that category are there not of their wish or their will. >> now liberal websites are focusing on the ryan speech. conservatives are focusing on the obama speech. the "huffington post" ryan r
was successful. nor does i think the romney side think sometimes what they accuse obama of. you cannot take this seriously. this is a political year, there's a campaign going on. they will try to do anything they can and especially the other groups out there who paint each other in the most horrible way, that's the way politics is. and for some reason or the other, negative ads play better than positive ads. therefore, you will always play the negative ads. >> i know you haven't decided who you're going to vote for in four weeks' time, but right now, if you had to vote tomorrow, who would you vote for? >> i have to first listen to the debates and then -- >> so they're that important to you. >> it's very important. to me, the debates were absolutely important. there were times when i made a decision way before, like president bush, because of the relationship of the kind of things that he has done for california, for instance, the kind of working relationship that we had and the history and also with senator mccain, i jumped in as soon as he declared because he has been a friend. and he has
, they don't care about as much. >> president obama, that was five years ago. decide for yourself whether this shows a side of barack obama never been seen before as the daily caller suggestsor nothing new. the president seems to be speaking at a difference cadence and a different kind of voice than he does in other speeches. decide the same thing about this. the content of this next video the huffington post first linked this video to it earlier today, paul ryan speaking at a 2011 dinner hosted by the american spectator, con serbtive magazine and this sounds a lot like mitt romney's comment on the 47%. >> the good news, still shows survey after survey, shows 70% of americans believe in the american dream, only 30% want the welfare state. half of the people currently in the category are there not of their wish or their will. >> liberal websites are focusing on the ryan speech, and the huffington post says they learned of a clip because a reader. ryan's campaign says only 30% want the welfare state, just as it is every day on t campaign trail, and the size trail, and so let's talk about th
learned to argue really well and make your points years ago. >> michelle obama and ann romney with advice for their husbands. the first lady will campaign for her husband this afternoon in nevada. meantime, ann romney campaigned in the state yesterday where she tried to appeal to women voters. that as our battleground state polling shows today that president obama has lost support. just three points down from 12 last month. however, the president still holds formidable leads among women voters in ohio and virginia. joining me now -- the sight of tonight's debate. it's great to have you here. showing president obama losing support with women voters. why do you think that might be the the case there? >> i think that women voters are looking at mitt romney's policies and they're realizing that they're not good for women. economic policies. the health care policies. family planning. in florida, of course, medicare's a big issue. women really want to look at candidates that are going to support issues that help women and families and that's what's going on. i think in florida and around the co
camp call the obama hug. i've been boot camping for five years. >> >> jennifer: when they greet each other? >> rhetorically speaking, he always hugs his opponent. he always says something nice. when jon huntsman got into the race for president obama said he was a great advocate for the country as an ambassador for china. we're really not so different. abraham lincoln who campaigned on don't change horses in the middle of the stream. obama is saying we're both going in the same direction. partisans hate it. but independents love it and that's why his support went up among independents. that's why people still believe that obama leads in the category of who cares about the problems that people like me -- that's why the medicaid moms are going to trust barack obama. >> jennifer: let me play you quickly a sound byte from that -- democrats passing obama care. take a quick listen. >> romney: instead of bringing america together and having a discussion on this important topic, you pushed through something that you and
. -- for obama this year in particular. >> the gap is the headline. very much so. >> question for all of you before we move to another clip that we have going to our point of how to move beyond winning and losing. wondering what would be the most important thing for me to look at what i am watching the debate? the debate is open, what should i look at in the beginning? >> my perspective would be the most important thing you want to look for is democratic leadership. how does this person perform democratic leadership? we have a set of conflicting expectations that the president the democratic or ordinary, someone we can relate to and would react like we would. someone who will subordinate himself or herself to the public will and be responsive servant. someone democratic and with the people, but also somewhat leaderly, someone who could take charge of public problems. those things have to come in a very delicate balance. that is often what kids overstepped. that is something i look at. you could think of times when it has been overstepped in one way or the other. george w. bush looking at his

of the united states, be it president obama or anybody else, has been sitting in office for nearly four years, the most differential character ever. he's called mr. president by his friends. and then all of a sudden for 90 minutes in front of 50 to 60 million people he can be torn apart. do you have to prepare for all of a sudden that change of existence, that change of environment? >> you're exactly right, ashleigh. there are real challenges for any incumbent president. they have people play music when they walk into a room, it is not a normal existence and very rarely will people ever tell a president to his face that he's dead wrong. so, yes, the debate prep process for an incumbent president very often involves taking someone who is clearly usually a very good political performer, making sure they're not rusty and hearing the arguments of the other side. you know, we're all watching both sides and hearing the debates, but the candidates, whether incumbent or not, they're sometimes in their own bubble and during these rehearsals, these debate prep sessions, you often hear the candidates sa

president four years ago, instead of barack obama, things have been different, you could have been if you had been born here. who knows. if you had been, do you honestly think you could have done any better than barack obama has done, inheriting such a huge financial mess? is the reality that whoever took over was going to be pretty much where he is now? what do you think? >> we maybe would have done things a little differently, but i can guarantee you that the president is doing everything that he can to solve the problems. i cannot imagine that president obama is sitting there and saying to himself, let me not fix this or let me have this fail. there's no such thing. i think that when you sit in this office like i sat as governor in my office, you work and you worry about those things day and night. many times you have sleepless nights and you worry about those things and you try to solve it. it's not that easy. it is a very, very difficult job. i think he has done as good of a job as he could do. he did it his way and they did it their way. i think that mitt romney has done a great job
. i think obama needs two terms to prove what he can do. >> i think about that. four years is probably never enough for anybody to do very much as president. if you come in, the first thing you do is get a whole new staff, you start to bring in policies. then just at the moment they're coming to fruition, you're in or out. eight years seem to me unless the president incumbent is so useless he has to go, really you need that length of time. >> i agree. and like we were saying backstage, if it wasn't for the 22nd amendment is it that bill clinton would be president again because he obviously knows what he's talking about and people feel confident with him. but i do believe in barack obama. i do believe his message. i haven't lost faith in him. and i think that, you know -- it's not an easy thing to do. nobody knows what the hell they're getting into when they're running for president. you don't know what job you're getting into hosting a show like this. we're not having a huge impact. i mean, you are, i guess. >> you have a huge impact. >> i have a huge impact with young girls, young wom
